Anyone noticed the flag emblems on the arms of the mercenaries.
There's one from South Korea, Belgium and I think Burkina Faso.
Making me think it'll be about infighting between countries and/or them having to work together, which possibly could be Blomkamp's message.

Isn't it just rubbing salt in wounds at this point? Seeing all this concept art is just like saying "Here's what you could have had, but will never get to see." What's the point?

Pending if its not given the chance to be a movie it could be adapted into a video game or a graphic novel and treat it like an Aliens Colonial Marines what if scenario.

Now that I think of it maybe Hicks' bio-gun is an Existenz moment where he has to sneak in an organic weapon undetected?

I'd also like it a bit more if Ripley (or whoever) was piloting a big clunky (possibly retrofitted) Space Jockey-type suit.

These are individual artists releasing content that was (presumably) under an embargo of some sort until very recently. "The point" is simply to show their talents in order to secure further work. It's not their fault the project was canned, so lighten up, dude.

Agreed. Oh for the days before the internet when we didn't get to see concept art until right about the time of release, if ever! And we liked it!  ;D

Thoorens is talented that's for sure. This stuff looks great.

I do wish for a fresh direction for the franchise, moving away from Scott who I think has lost his spark for these movies.

This might have been it.

I just want another Alien movie proper. Is that really too much to ask?

As someone else said: blomkamp has since district 9 pretty much done the same setup and theme in all of his movies: docu or message kind of start of the movie, then nailing down the message like in chappie that all life is sacred etc and then a mecha suit end battle.

I get the same feeling here: would see Ripley and hicks and they are dragged into weyland yutani trying to do something with the xenos and threatening life on earth and newt so they start to fight back and its probably a drama docu style in the start, showing weyland yutani doing things and those guards with that dog picture might be a tv recording of WY entering some hotspot. Then at the end we have ripley in the queen mecha suit fighting the queen alien and lots of action. Blomkamp must have mecha suits or robots, its in all of his movies :P

Yes but District 9 did it actually well, every action movie can be exactly the same set up and do it well.Aliens is effectively a carbon copy of Alien, glaringly obvious towards the end. That doesn't matter, what matters is he learned how Hollywood worked and Hollywood doesn't want its support and romantic notions for say, Apartheid, because the people against Apartheid were largely socialists, to be central to the conversation anyone is having. They, and thus Neil because he's not stupid, knows what they want. Which is some stupid childish fantasy. The editing of the camera work and how scenes play out of District 9 is nowhere close to his other films, mixing with static camera for story happening at the time and handheld, then handheld moved in such a way that it feels documentary or investigative, perhaps home video of some sort.Then there's news footage. And then there's documentary happening of the events that already happened, his own father in the beginning raising curiosity saying "He (Vickus) died in my mind a long time ago". It asks whoever is watching "Well why would a father say that about his own son, now I'm intrigued."

You learn "Oh right, he's an Afrikaaner through and through it all makes sense now

Not against the concepts he uses and aliens is basicly alien retold with a different tone and do things differently witht he same lore and creature. My point about blomkamp is more: since district 9 he has tried to do the same movie and replicate the same success but failing harder and harder at it.

I would disagree about him failing harder each time. I think Elysium is absolutely his worst film – it is his biggest and most conventionally mainstream and, perhaps as a direct result, feels the most compromised and sloppy. I'm in a weird minority that quite likes Chappie, though; I may even prefer it to District 9, actually. And I do look forward to checking out his new one, Demonic.

My major reservations about him taking on an Alien have less to do with his specific body of work and any patterns within, and more to do with some or the specific ideas present in the concept art tied to his project.
